Synopsis: Blood and Groom (published November 2009)

BLOOD AND GROOM

When not talking dirty at her part time phone sex job, or singing cheesy cover tunes in generic suburban bars, fledgling private investigator Sasha Jackson is spending her days trying to figure out how “till death do us part” applies to her jilted client.

Christine Arvisais was dumped by her gold plated fiancé days before mailing the wedding invitations. Four months later, he was shot in a Toronto ravine during his Saturday morning jog. Christine says she was wrapped in seaweed and bathing in mud when Gordon Hanes went to the mahogany paneled VIP room in the sky.

Then another former fiancĂ© falls victim to another femme fatale and it appears Cupid’s bow is no match for the Grim Reaper’s scythe.
As Sasha continues her investigation, she uncovers a pattern of guys who skipped “I do” and now never will. It seems a coincidence, until Sasha learns the real meaning of “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.”

With her dad driving her crazy via long distance, and her brother steeped in confusion about his own romantic comedy of Eros, Sasha must figure out who’s whacking would-be grooms before it becomes a case of four funerals and a wedding.

  1. Sounds like a good one, Jill. Congrats on publishing this fall. They wouldn't be sending out review copies, would they?

  2. Having bought the book at the Montreal book signing event, I went home and read it, cover to cover that night. I liked the humour, the twists, and the quirky character traits. It was fun to read. I look forward to another Sasha Jackson novel.
